I can say it is addictive and I missed it all this time.

Meanwhile I bought also a JVC FXZ100 as I needed some portables, they have powerful and great bass, but otherwise I think the GR07 are much better. The details are impressive and at this moment I cannot wish more from a pair of headphones. I'm not an audiophile, but I can appreciate a balanced and fairly neutral sound. The Gr07BE are amazing IEMs. So happy I got them back! :)

Why don´t you consider the gr07 portables? Don´t they fit you good enough to use them outside?

Sorry, you misunderstood. While the Gr07 where sent to repair, I needed another pair for outside use.

Now that I got gr07 back...they will take the place as main portables. They are very good and they fit good!

Can an Gr07 BE owner who also has experienced the Yamaha EPH100 do a quick comparison between the two? I'd imagine them to be quite similar to each other sound quality/signature wise.

I've briefly used the EPH-100 and more extensively the GR07 BE. I have to say that the Yamaha never satisfied me: excluding the fit - which is pretty personal - the sound of the japanese is too much toward the bass. That is they have a weak higher-mid and treble, in my opinion.

The GR07 BE has a clearer sound with some low bass added (and some sibilance). Honestly sometime the GR07BE they are too bass-heavy, but it depends on the recording equalization.

Now I'm using a pair of Westone 4R and I find them perfectly equilibrated.

Thank you.

 

Interesting. I dont find the punchy bass of the Yamahas overpowering, even when listening to bass oriented genres (dubstep, etc.) it seems rather well controlled.

 

Im always interested in something which offers better clarity, so I'll definitely pick up the BEs sometime in the near future.

I didn't wanted to imply that the EPH100 has overpowering bass, but for my taste the bass dominated too much the spectrum, probably because the upper-mid and high are weak… and this is why I prefer so much the GR07BE.. after the Westone 4R, I mean :wink_face:.

Gotcha. As for the highs being weak, I'll have to disagree. :)

I will be receiving a pair of GR07 BE's and a pair of GR01's here in the next few days.  I'll be coming from a pair of Klipsch X10's and full size headphones like the LCD2r2's and Grado PS500's.  

 

How will these new IEM's compare to what I've been listening to?  The X10's have really grown on me the last few weeks so I'm pretty excited to upgrade!

With the BE at least, bass will be similar but with better speed, decay and texture most likely.  Both the new Vsonics will provide a higher level of transparency and treble response, so expect more clarity, air and resolution overall.  While I've not heard the GR01 yet, I suspect that they will complement the BE well, much like your full sized setup.  I've been considering checking out a BA-based IEM next and was actually looking at the more recent VC1000.

 

As always, post some impressions once you've had a few weeks with them and had an opportunity to get adjusted to the sound of all three.

The GR07 Classic was supposed to be released last month (no update that I've seen yet anyway), priced at around $99.  As for the VSD3, I think by Nov/Dec and the VSD7/VSD9 early next year?  Those were the estimates I read anyway.  The housing on the latter two is rumored to look similar to the GR07 but with a detachable cable (finally!) though I have seen some other designs that look similar to Shure IEMs.  Either way I'm interested in more details - it's been pretty hush hush about the upcoming models.

Really excited for the release of these new models, next year can't come soon enough. The VSD5/7 look really nice and I'm sure well sound amazing.smily_headphones1.gif

As a quick update to my earlier post, I received the GR07 BE's a few days ago and they are quite an improvement over the X10's in pretty much every way.  More detail, resolution, and general treble response.  Bass is similar but a bit faster and cleaner.  I'm giving these a chance to break in a bit more but I have been impressed so far. 

 

I received the GR01's the day after the GR07's and they have completely blown me away.  A big upgrade in every way (except bass quantity) over the X10's.  I want to give the 07's a chance to really be broken in before judging them against the 01's but I can say right now that they have a tough task ahead of them!  It may be that I just prefer the BA sound, but we'll see after a few weeks with both of these.
